Rustic chopping board and serving platter

Knocked these up out of some boards I'd milled and done nothing with
 

Sycamore chopping board, apparently sycamore is one of the best woods to use in chopping blocks as it actually has some natural antibacterial properties



This was a piece of cherry that wasn't really wide enough to use as a chopping board so left it a bit longer to use as a serving platter. I always think food looks better served this way!

Both were treated with a bees wax based finish, designed for use in salad bowls and butchers blocks
